Your NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE RECORDING SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE
While there are several Nashville Audio Engineering Schools from which to choose, the RECORDING CONNECTION is the only one that gets you inside an actual Nashville recording studio, working as an audio student apprentice (extern) as you learn mixing, audio engineering, music production, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), post production audio and electronic DJ. Make no mistake: the smartest way to break into the recording industry in Nashville is by apprenticing inside a Nashville recording studio–and we’re the school that can put you there.
Don’t make the mistake of spending 20-50 thousand dollars to go to an audio engineering trade school when you can spend far less money and go to audio engineering school in a real recording studio. Get on the inside track, learn directly from the pros, and get connected as you get educated. Our audio engineering school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient program on the market today.
It’s called “Music City, U.S.A.” for a reason. Long recognized as the country music capital of the world, Nashville is actually one of the world’s biggest hubs for the music industry in general. While country music certainly dominates the musical landscapes, there are hotbeds of rock, punk, hip-hop, gospel, folk old-time and even R&B throughout the city as well. Icons like Jimi Hendrix and Etta James have roots here, just the same as the Carter Family and George Jones.
As is to be expected, Nashville is known not just for its recording studios, but for its incredible live music scene. Everyone knows about the Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium (and more recently, The 5 Spot, thanks to ABC TV series Nashville). But there’s also the Bluebird Café, Rocketown, Mercy Lounge, The Basement, and innumerable others. Just outside the Ryman, music fans can take their pick from dozens of venues within walking distance along Second Ave. and Lower Broadway. There’s definitely no shortage of venues in Nashville, let alone musical acts to play in them. (Nashville is to aspiring musical artists as Hollywood is to aspiring actors!)
Of course, Nashville is the ‘Mecca’ of country music, heralded by the four-day CMA Music Festival held each June, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and of course, Opryland USA. Each of these landmarks and events create great opportunities for music fans to hear their favorite artists, but for the musicians and industry professionals themselves, the real work goes on in Nashville’s plethora of world-class recording studios, where some of the best-selling music in the world is recorded, produced and mixed on a daily basis. And the RECORDING CONNECTION puts you in the heart of the action like no other audio engineering school can.
Some of the best producers and engineers in the Nashville music scene have endorsed our program and have opened their studio doors to teach and mentor our students. This means when you enroll in the Nashville Recording Connection, one of these world-class studios becomes your personal classroom, and one of these major-league industry professionals becomes your personal mentor. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from the best, practice on the best gear, and sit in on recording sessions with some of the best musicians in the world. Best of all, you’ll have the chance to meet and connect with lots of industry pros while you prove your skills in the studio. There’s simply no better way to break into the music industry!
